    • From the office of Liz Shuler, Secretary-Treasurer AFL-CIO

      In your key roles as leaders of our important State Feds and CLCs, you know better than anyone that buying union-made products and services is a great way to stand in unity with our brothers and sisters. Thankfully, there is a clear option to do just that in the often crowded world of mobile carriers. With 45,000 workersrepresented by the Communications Workers of America, AT&T is the only national unionized wireless provider and is the clear choice for union members, their families and for the union staff working to promote their interests.
       
      In an effort to ensure that AT&T is the clear union choice for telecommunications services, CWA facilitated negotiations with AT&T, the AFL-CIO, and Union Plus to provide discounted wireless service for union offices, union staff, and most importantly, valued union members. In addition, through negotiated discounts with the AFL-CIO, AT&T also offers significant savings on local and long-distance, internet, video and web conferencing and other communications technology services for national, regional and local union offices.

      The Missouri State Council of Fire Fighters would like to thank the members of the Missouri House of Representatives that stood up for working families in Missouri on "Right to Work".

      A disabled member of the Joplin, Missouri Fire Department Tom Robertson and other members of IAFF Local 2618 have jointly filed a petition for a hearing with the Missouri Court of Appeals (Southern District) in Springfield on the formula that the City of Joplin used in calculating his disability pension.  Firefighter Robertson was awarded 37.5 percent of his average salary rather than the 50 percent he should have received for being disabled because he had less than 20 year of service at the time he was awarded his disability.  Read more about this case in the article that appeared in the Joplin Globe by clicking here.

      Congratulations to the members of IAFF Local 152 and the Springfield Fire Department.  On Tuesday, April 8th the voters overwhelmingly approved renewal of Sales Tax to fund the Pension Plans for Police and Fire Department employees by 76% margin.  For more information on this please read the entire story by clicking here.

      April 3, 2014: Today the Missouri House voted in favor of Paycheck Protection/Deception 83 to 69 and this Bill is being sent to the Missouri Senate.  See how they voted by clicking here.

      The Delegates at the 50th IAFF Convention passed Resolution #23 "Our Good Name" which applies to the use of the IAFF Logo.

      This resolution condemns the act of ordering or applying this union’s good name in the form of the IAFF Logo, the letters IAFF or the words “International Association of Fire Fighters” to any piece of apparel or merchandise that is not UNION made, or is made outside of the United States of America or Canada.

      Union Shop Apparel is one of the only organizations within North America that fully complies with Resolution #23.  All of the employees at Union Shop Apparel are members of IUPAT Local 820.  We invite you to visit their website and checkout their new Online Store.  They specialize in Custom Embroidery and Silk Screening.
